We have lots going on at Scubaducks over the summer months. These are some of our upcoming speciality courses. If you don’t see the course you are interested in here, give us a call - this is just a sample of the courses available.
Navigation Speciality - 8th and 9th July
It's always good to be able to find a dive site, and even better to be able to find your exit point at the end of the dive! Finding your way is not a matter of luck - be the diver that everyone wants to follow and make your sense of direction legendary with the Navigation Speciality course.
You will learn how to navigate with a compass and how to use natural navigation, how to estimate distances, navigate search patterns, and how to relocate dive sites and submerged objects or positions.
Price: £255 (discounts apply for Scubaducks Dive Club members)
React Right - Saturday 15th July, 10 am
First Aid and CPR are valuable skills that everyone should have. Who knows when you may be first on the scene when someone needs help quickly? This could happen any time, any place - and not just in a scuba diving situation. React Right is an emergency training programme that includes Primary Assessment, First Aid & CPR Skills, and Primary Stabilisation Techniques.
This is a classroom-based course. Price: £135 (discounts apply for Scubaducks Dive Club members)
Diver Stress and Rescue
Classroom and Pool: Sunday 16th July; Open Water: Saturday 19th August
Stress is a major cause of diving accidents and negatively impacts rescue situations. This programme teaches you the skills and knowledge required to recognise and deal with stress, prevent accidents and properly deal with emergency situations encountered by divers.
A first aid/CPR qualification is a necessary pre-requisite for certification - this can be React Right, EFR or an award from another organisation.
Price: £315 (discounts apply for Scubaducks Dive Club members)

You will learn about search patterns, specialised dive plans, underwater communication, and how to recover small to medium-sized objects using specialised equipment.
Price: £305 (discounts apply for Scubaducks Dive Club members)
